BONGAIGAON, June 27 - The Indo-Global Social Service Society (IGSSS) organised a dissemination workshop on peace action in conflict-prone and vulnerable areas of BTC and Karbi Anglong, here on Thursday.
The NGO had initiated its three-year project at Kokrajhar and Chirang districts in a bid to build peace against conflict in 2014 when the people of Bodo, Adivasi and the Muslim communities lost mutual trust after clashes erupted between them.
To rebuild the trust and peace among the communities in those two districts, ten volunteers and five paid staff of IGSSS swung into action with dedication.
In the workshop, the NGO presented its achievements and called upon the participants, who were mostly women from different communities, to support its peace initiative.
Shankar Brata Raimedhi, Superintendent of Police, Chirang district, as an invited guest in the workshop, released the souvenir of the NGO and encouraged it to continue its mission.
Chirang district Social Welfare Officer S Thakuria spoke on peace and a mother�s role in building a violence-free society. �The mistrust prevailing till date to some extent among the communities is a hurdle to the peace in BTC and to remove that mistrust, we have to work hard,� said Dulal Basumatary, Programme Officer of IGSSS.
